Editorial Reviews

VOYA, April 2015 (Vol. 38, No. 1) - Ellen Frank
The Custom Creations Cookbook is a desert book filled with easy recipes and beautiful color illustrations of delectable desserts that are almost too pretty to eat. Most of the recipes call for cake, cookie, and/or pudding mixes. Each recipe consists of a baking component and a decorating component. The baking directions are easy to follow; however, some of the decorating instructions require some artistic talent. There are some useful decorating tips and creative decorating ideas for different occasions. This cookbook is fine for those looking for quick desserts that look pretty but are not very nutritious. Most of the recipes use ingredients that could be found already in the home. There are step-by-step instructions with many photographs to illustrate techniques. Some creative ideas include heart-filled cupcakes, cupcake pops, and ice cream cone cupcakes. This is a fun collection geared to teens and adults with a festive occasion for which to prepare dessert. Readers looking for more nutritious options can always swap the cake-box ingredient with a personal favorite cake recipe. Missing from this cookbook are alternatives for people who are gluten-free, or those looking for recipes with less sugar. Reviewer: Ellen Frank; Ages 11 to 18.

Title: Custom Confections - Delicious Desserts You Can Create and Enjoy Author: Jen Besel Published: 9-24-2014 Publisher: Capstone Young Readers Pages: 112 Genre: Cooking, Food & Wine Sub Genre: Arts & Photography; Children's Cookbooks ISBN: 9781623701369 ASIN: B00N105TUC Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 4 1/2 stars . A beautifully put together cookbook with recipes young cooks and older ones as well) will find tempting. The recipes are easy to read and follow and pictures show how lovely the finished product will look. I disagree on the claim younger cooks can make the recipes themselves on their own. That is not a problem as my great nieces and nephews and I have a great time in my kitchen when they visit. For that I consider this book perfect. My 12 year-old great-niece and ten year-old nephews made the blueberry cheesecake tarts and the mini apple cakes for a youth get-together at the church (we of course had to taste them to ensure they were done correctly.) We also made the Perfect Pie Pops for ourselves. When they went home after church that Sunday they were already talking about what we would make the next month. Although I passed my tween years, teens and young adult long ago I made the Frozen Lemonade for myself. No matter what your age Custom Confections is a great recipes to enjoy and share. Also young bakers will love the decorating aspects of these confections. My rating is 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Decorating tips and the fact that most of these recipes use packaged or homemade cake mixes as a basis make these recipes easy and fun to make.
